Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Copenhagen will be looking to extend their thrilling winning run when they take on CSKA Sofia in the Europa League third qualifying round, return leg. The Danes are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration and despite the fact they defeated the Bulgarian side 2-1 at Stadion Vasil Levski in the first leg, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts, who seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Bosnian international Kenan Kodro, who found the net in the first leg, is likely to lead the line for Copenhagen against CSKA Sofia. The Bulgarians are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Denmark and seeing that they will be without defender Bozhidar Chorbadzhiyski (suspension) in the return leg, we believe that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s football match.
Highlighted Player (Viktor Fischer):
Viktor Fischer is a professional football player who was born in Aarhus, Denmark on 9 June, 1994. Fischer used to play for several Danish clubs during his youth career (Lyseng, Viby, AGF, Midtylland) and in 2012 he made his senior debut for Eredivisie giants Ajax.
The Dutch forward played his first game for Ajax on 20 October 2012 in a 3-3 draw and he scored his first goal for the Dutch outfit on 31 October 2012 against ONS Sneek in the KNVB Cup. Viktor is the grandson of former Danish football player Poul Pedersen. Both prefer to play on the wing, but Viktor Fisher is capable of playing as attacking midfielder or centre forward as well. It has to be noted that he scored ten goals in 23 appearances for Ajax in the 2012/2013 Eredivisie campaign.
On 14 November, 2012 he made his Denmark debut in a friendly against Turkey. Fischer was widely regarded as one of Ajax’s hottest prospects and he eventually joined Premier League newcomers Middlesbrough in the summer of 2016.
Highlighted Team (FC Copenhagen):
The most successful club in the history of Danish football FC Kopenhagen was founded in 1992, through the merger of 15-time Danish champions Kjobenhavns Boldklub and seven-time champions of Denmark Boldklubben 1903. Football Club Copenhagen play their matches at the Telia Parken, a venue that can host 38,000 spectators.
The Team of the City as Copenhagen is called in Denmark has won the Danish football championship eleven times, while it has also won the Danish Cup on seven occasions. The club forms great rivalry with Copenhagen’s suburban club Brondby IF with games between the two club attracting some of the biggest crowds in Danish football history in this so called New Firm derby.
Through its history F.C. Copenhagen have participated in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League, while their major European accomplishments have been achieved in the Royal League, with the Danish powerhouse winning two titles and coming as runners-up on one occasion.
